National Summary
Ozone-depleting substances (ODSs) break down the stratospheric ozone layer through the reaction of chlorine and bromine with ozone. Sources of chlorine and bromine are both natural and man-made. Man-made sources include: Chlorofluorocarbons , Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs, Carbon tetrachloride, Methyl bromide, Methyl chloroform, and Halons. These chemicals are very stable in the lower atmosphere and do not break down, nor are they soluble in water. Thus, these chemicals rise through the atmosphere and mix with the ozone in the upper atmosphere. contribute to climate change, or result in other harm to public health or the environment.
